The kitchen has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. (Hence the photo of me as a child in the kitchen with my older brother.) It's the place where I find comfort. It's the place where I can put my creative skills into practice. And it's the place where I can create nutritious, satisfying food for my family. I'm a strong believer that people will find success in something that they truly like and believe in. That is why I chose to turn my love of being in the kitchen into the subject of my college education and now into my business. Can't wait to make you something yummy!
